The Energy Crisis


Like many others who preceded us, our "civilisation" faces an Energy Crisis of megawattic proportions, which threatens to bring an end to our brief joyride.

But our dirty little secret is seldom mentioned in the news, let alone connected to economic instability or to environmental effects on our planet. It falls to Robert Foster to bring this topic back into the fore of our consciousness, where he conducts an incisive analysis of the situation to see what solutions are out there to deal with peak energy. Join your ever-curious anchor as he invites a panoply of guests - the great, the good, the bizarre, and the downright trollsome - along to share their solutions to this crisis. In the end, the shift required might have to be psychological as well as technological.

Enjoy the ride, fellow children of the industrial revolution.
